Recently a friend pointed out that i needed to start blogging about my business, So let me start by introducing myself and giving you a little background info
So Hi im Sarah, from Sarah Taylor Studio , based in the Staffordshire Moorland and to give me my full title i am a Surface pattern designer (i know most people dont know what that is either!) i design patterns to go on homeware collections. I have a range of ceramics and melamine place mats and coasters which i design in my studio and sell through a few different shops and galleries. I am also a wife and mum of two boys and one dog and at the minute a builder too but i will tell you more about that in another post.
Pre children i was an interior stylist having studied textiles at college but after having my children i decided to have a change in career and with a three and a half year old and a one year old i went back to college part time which set the wheels in motion for the next part of my journey. After 3 years at my local college and 2 years at Staffordshire University i graduated with a first class honours degree and after exhibiting at New Designers in London my business was born.
At times i wont pretend, its been hard going but on the whole it has been an incredibally rewarding time in my life and hopefully ive shown my boys that having a dream, lots of hard work and a good family life can be a reality.
